an imperfect application of a Gordian Knot allusion

29 Jun

In my relatively short life, I have come to discover that a great many difficulties can be remedied by the simple act of cutting through all the bullshit and attacking a problem head-on. Rather than spending much frustrated time and effort in trying to untangle all of the crap, rumor and innuendo surrounding an issue […]

say hello to my little friend

27 Jun

Seen here, artfully posed with some of the crap lying around my hotel room: This, my friends, is a Lanikai LU22CGC Concert Ukulele. As it happened, I had taken a drive over to Guitar Center this evening to amuse myself after work, and after playing a bunch of guitars and basses I had no intention […]

cutout X – court jesters and ego-tripping solo projects

27 Jun

This is the tenth entry of this particular feature, which is longer than any sort of project I’ve tried to maintain save the random ten (which doesn’t really require all that much effort). With this piece, I’ve talked about 40 records, which barely cracks the contents of the box. If I want to keep going, […]

congratulations, empire state

27 Jun

It’s nice to see another state, particularly one so populous, signing on to the idea that everybody deserves the same rights as everyone else. Also, once New York is done celebrating and picking out china patterns, I wonder if it’s too much to ask her to have a chat with her fellow original British colony […]

24 Jun

At best, I’m a Sorry! token or one of the little kid pegs from The Game of Life. I’m going to the water park now and […]

cutout IX: a stunted movement, and probably too much thought on a teenage obesssion

23 Jun

I’m pretty sure with this entry, I’m caught up with my listening, and it’s probably time to swap out for a new box of CDs. That is, if I can resist just listening to Alpocalypse over and over for a while. What can I say, a boy never outgrows his “Weird” Al. In any case, […]

the other 90 percent is filled with curds and whey

23 Jun

I’ve been following with interest the discussion at pandagon and elsewhere regarding the social implications of vegetarianism and veganism, particularly the apparent difficulty experienced by people in relationships where one partner is vegan and the other is not. It’s an interesting topic that one might not immediately think about; the importance of food in our […]

what’s the tensile strength of a neuron?

22 Jun

Have you ever had to take in so much information in so little time that your brain hurts from having to expand to be able to take it all in, let alone process it all? That was between two and three pm for me today. Ow.
